Recording information by carmerappleGOLD

"Cold, Cold Heart" is a country music and pop song recorded by Hank Williams. This blues ballad is both a classic of honky-tonk and an entry in the Great American Songbook.

Music journalist Chet Flippo and Kentucky historian W. Lynn Nickell have each described how 21-year-old Kentuckian Paul Gilley wrote the lyrics, then sold them to Williams along with the rights, allowing Williams to take credit for it. Gilley also wrote the lyrics to "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and other songs before drowning at the age of 27

Jazz singer Norah Jones included a sultry swing version on her 2002 album Come Away With Me, which was seen as "re-introducing" modern audiences to the song
